Trixie – Adoption Pending!!
born ~September 2016
nearly crate trained
Introducing Trixie! At only 6lbs, Miss Trixie is an itty-bitty chihuahua mix but we aren’t quite sure she knows that. So far, she’s proven to be able to wrestle with the big dogs and acts like she is huge and fearless.
At about a year old, Trixie has a lot of spunk in her – she’s playful, outgoing and keeps herself entertained. Though she doesn’t rely on her humans, she certainly bonds with them and is very attentive to her people. Dancing around on her hind legs is quite the sight to see! Trixie has never met a cat (to our knowledge) but she’s also half the size of one, so she’d probably be fine. She hasn’t been around children either, but she does great with other dogs!
At first, meeting all of her 4-legged friends was a little scary. Now that she has acclimated, she basically has the confidence of a large dog. Playing with dogs of any size is something that Trixie just loves, but she’s proven to have a little jealousy here and there. Soft introductions aren’t necessary and she would do fine at any dog park. When she’s around new people, she is a bit more shy than when she meets new dogs, but all she wants is pets and kisses so it doesn’t take long for her to befriend the humans. The only thing that seems to scare her is loud noises. Outside of that, this girl is a champ!
Housebroken? Nearly! If she is let out regularly, she does just fine. It’s when Foster Mom forgets to open the door, because Trixie doesn’t have a signal so… when you gotta go you gotta go! Crate trained? Still learning. Meal time happens in her crate, so there’s no hesitation for that. And when Foster Mom is gone for the day, she does fine. It’s when the house is awake and Trixie is stuck in her crate… she doesn’t want to miss out on the fun! Other than minor whining and scratching at the door, she does well. Sleeping through the night isn’t an issue at all.
Trixie is an active gal, always zipping around and picking on one dog or another, staying a part of the action. At her size, that’s basically all the exercise she needs. If she ends up an only dog, then regular walks or games of fetch would be a good idea. And boy does this little lady love attention. She always wants to be nearby and give kisses up in your business. And I mean In. Your. Business. Expect some good kiss/nibble action, paws on your face, licking your mouth, nose, chin… everything! But she’s super cute and you can’t really be upset about it…
If you’re looking for a petite pup who wants to show you here love and devotion, Trixie is your gal! At only 6lbs, you can basically take her anywhere, which is exactly where she wants to be – right with you.
